Fireplace Safety Tips
Throughout the year, our REALTORS® enjoy showing potential buyers homes for sale in Ann Arbor complete with fireplaces perfect for warming your home. During Michigan's cold winter days, please consider these eight fireplace safety tips.

  1. Clean It

Sell Ann Arbor Home Curb Appeal
Gray skies, snowy weather, and stark, leafless trees can create a rather bleak look during the winter months – a look you'll want to overcome if you're working on selling your home. So what do you need to know about creating curb appeal against such a dreary backdrop? Here are some tips that can help ensure that your home looks warm and inviting this winter, creating a great first impression for potential buyers as they shop Ann Arbor homes for sale

  • Check Your Exterior
    The exterior of your home is in full display once the leaves have fallen from the trees. Step back and take a look at your home with this in mind. Is the siding dirty and dingy? A power-washer can take care of that. Are there areas of fading or peeling paint? Touch them up. Loose or missing shingles? Get them repaired. Clogged, damaged or loose gutters? Get them cleaned and fixed. These small things can make a big difference regarding that all-important first impression, making it clear that you invest in proper home maintenance.
